The following Dorothy births/baptisms in Sussex between 1695 and 1705 have
been taken from the IGI:
Dorothy Matthews baptised 19 May 1695 in Arundel, daughter of
Thomas Matthews and Elizabeth.
Dorothy Cornwall baptised 21 July 1695 in Buxted, daughter of
William Cornwall. She may have been buried on 19 March 1696 in
Buxted, or she may have married Henry Stephens on 17 November 1724
Dorothy Palmer baptised 15 September 1695 in Whittle (?, as per the
Dorothea Staples baptised 26 November 1695 in East Grinstead,
daughter of Alexander Staples and Mary Tufton, who had
married on 14 September 1686 in London.
Dorothy Harris baptised 24 January 1696 in East Grinstead, daughter
of John Harris and Anne. 1696 was the IGI's date,
which could have been 1696/7. She is currently my favourite to have
been the wife of William Hames. Dorothy had an elder brother
Nicholas Harris baptised on 31 March 1695 in East Grinstead.
The only John and Ann marriage pre 1695, listed in the Sussex Family
History Group's marriage index, was on 9 October 1694 in Selmeston,
between John Harris of West Firle and Ann Wood a widow of
Selmeston. But 2 John Harriss' were buried in West Firle on
10 February 1704 and 1 November 1719, so I don't think the Selmeston marriage
was that of the East Grinstead couple. On 1 April 1673 a John
Harris married Ann Hasleden in Wadhurst. Could John and
Ann also be the parents of the following, baptised in Withyham: Grace
Harris baptised on 21 December 1693, Mary Harris born on 6
November 1698 and baptised in November 1698 and Sarah Harris born
